Liz Bentley is a writer, poet, comedian, host, programmer, musician, mother, therapist, insomniac and brilliant. On going into psychotherapy after experiencing bulimia, drugs, abuse and MS, she discovered her creative side. She now works as a therapist in Southwark and lives in Peckham with her two children.
She’s performed at the Southbank Centre and the Edinburgh Festival, has written a couple of books (Tales in the Deep End and £500 a Line and Other Poems) and you can catch her full-length show Crash Bash Trash around town at the moment (notably The Albany in Deptford on 17th November).
